Vibrant blue eyeliner & bright white highlights | Just Cavalli/Lise Watier SS13

!Into the blue

At long last: an actual post!

I’m not usually the biggest fan of blue, but the new Lise Watier Dramatique Intense Extra Smooth Liner in Bleu ($20 CAD) is definitely swaying me in its favour.

Paired with the Lise Watier Ombre Soufflé Suprême in Magie Blanche and Dramatique Intense 3D Volume Mascara in Noir (both also new for the spring), this look is based off of Benjamin Puckey’s SS13 Just Cavalli show, where MAC Marine Ultra Chromaline Eyeliner was applied in contrast to a pearly white pigment.

The effect (at least, on the models) was gorgeous: bright-eyed, intense, and flattering on literally any eye shape.

I’m still not that crazy about Emerald, so the abundance of blue we’ve been seeing? Pretty great, if you ask me. Lise’s Bleu in particular really caught my eye, and I can honestly say that it is by far the most stunning eyeliner I own. In person, the colour is complex, vivid, and saturated in a way that my other liners just aren’t — it’s definitely not another boring blue.

This look used two other products I’m pretty pleased with, as well: the L’Occitane Immortelle Brightening Mist (whose super-fine mist makes it my current go-to for dewy skin), and the gorgeously-fragranced Clarins Palette Eclat (which I’ve featured in a couple other posts, but still haven’t reviewed — sorry!)

I don’t know. It’s soft, basic, easy; I’m kinda fond.

    That's a very pretty blue, I'm reminded of the darker half of MAC's old Sea & Sky. I love how it brings out brown eyes, very nice look. :]

    Argh, this is SUCH a funny coincidence, because I was just about to ask you for ideas for brighter eye looks and asdjfkljer;! Eeee!

    I LOVE the step-by-step photo tutorial, by the way! :D

    • !!! Clearly, our brains are like that, Alison. //hand flapping :D

      Glad you liked the tutorial! I have another bright-eyed look coming up in a couple weeks; it's a little more subtle, but I think you might like it ;) Keep an eye out!

  • BellaChique

    I've been loving the vibrant blue eye liner! You look so pretty with it, I actually love it more on you, lol ^^.

    • Aww, thank you, my dear! I'm 100% sure you can rock vibrant blue eyeliner like mad, but then, we always want what we can't have, right? ;)

  • m

    ! so inspired to try blue liner now. so pretty on you!

    • Thanks, m! I'm glad to hear I've inspired you to try the look — hope you have fun with it! :)

  • Sugar

    Loving the makeup, but OMG your hair! How did you get those curls? :)

    • Thanks, Sugar! They're just quick flatiron curls — eight minutes, a couple hair clips (to help section it out), & 200 degrees :p

      • Sugr

        I can't seem to get the hang of flatiron curls, do you do the one and a half twist and drag thing?

        • I'm afraid I do :/ What do you find is going wrong with your curls — too straight, too curled, too messy?

          • Sugar

            It ends up pin-straight actually, I must be doing something wrong (or my layers are too short). Will keep trying, thanks for your help :)

          • Hmm, sounds like a problem in technique — try taking smaller sections (so less hair is going through the iron at once), using a hotter setting, or pulling the iron through your hair more slowly :) One of those should definitely help; it's all about finding the right combination of temperature, sections, & speed for your hair!

            Good luck : )

  • i'm so glad you posted this!! i'm crazy over colored eyeliners right now. purples are awesome too. and i tried making a coral gel liner with a coral shadow and illamasqua's sealing gel, works like a charm to brighten my eyes! i'm trying to find a teal one now :D
